I won't go onto what I think about televangelists if you wish to know what I think of them there are many posts on my blogs.
I can't say what I think of the Jimmy Swaggart ministry as I have not listened to his sermons, this post is more about the music. I concluded that the Gaither Homecoming series is not a religious collection as I thought; it has been aimed to promote individual artists such as David Phelps, the Gaither Vocal Band (which Mr. Phelps is in), Lynda Randle and Wes Hampton (also in GVB) at the expense of others who are equally as good.
When I began listening there were songs from Sue Dodge, Joy Gardner, and Sandi Patty to mention a few of the singers. It has turned more into a variety show supporting colored singers, not that I've anything against colored singers as I enjoy listening to Mary Mary, Babbie Mason, Jamie Grace, Alicia Williamson, and Dorinda Clark Cole to mention a few.
I am not the only person who has been turned off from the series because of their promotional attitudes.
I realize that the shows on JMS feature Martha Borg, Grace Larson, and Johnathon Larson, but you get the feeling it is the word of the Lord that matters in the service.
